Blessed with what the New York Times described as a “beautiful countertenor,” singer ART GARFUNKEL has made an indelible mark on the music world as both a solo artist and half of the unrivaled Simon & Garfunkel. He has also enjoyed a successful film career, published a book of prose poems and released 12 original solo albums, the most recent being Some Enchanted Evening in 2007. Then, in 2012, he most proudly released his life’s body of work, a 2-CD compendium, The Singer. Art and his beautiful wife, actress Kathryn Luce Garfunkel, have two sons, 24 year-old Arthur Junior–a magnificent singer in his own right–and nine-year-old Beau Daniel.
